ENGR 5370 - Computational Thermal Hydraulics


(3) Credit Hours

An introduction to the techniques of computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer. Topics will include basic descriptive equations, discretization schemes, finite difference methods, finite elements, accuracy and stability of methods, the SIMPLE algorithm, the two-equation turbulence model, and numerical grid generation. Students will write finite difference programs in a language such as FORTRAN or C and use commercial finite element software. Background in programming, fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer processes, and differential and difference equations required and MATH 5640 is desirable. Supplementary course fee assessed.
